-on-one direct phone calls with the israeli prime minister and also not the head of hamas, not the palestinian authority, but the president of egypt, which for a generation was our ally in the region, even though it was a creepy and repressive dictatorship. now that country, that crucial nation in this critical part of the world has a whole new face and maybe a whole new character in terms of its international responsibilities. nobody knows if this effort by them to broker a ceasefire is going to work. but it seems almost as important for the region, for the world, for us, frankly, that if a cease fire is going to come from anywhere, it looks like it's going to come from there. joining us live from gaza is richard engel. richard, earlier today we were hearing reports from jerusalem that a cease fire might be possible by tonight. that did not happen. what did happen today? why did the prospects change? >> reporter: i think it goes back to what you were just talking about. the historic picture has changed here and the two sides basically didn't want the cease fire. they have a strong hand right
